Microsoft finally see the light of day and uncripple its Open Specification Promise. It was short-sighted when it decides to exclude GPL-ed software and, if I remember correctly, exclude everyone that competes with it, using the euphemism “Non commercial” software.
Before this, Microsoft used the standard PR technique of not admitting GPL-ed software is not covered. It is now saying explicitly that GPL-ed software is covered. This is a very very big step for Microsoft and we need to recognize and commend it.
